OK except for the dark shadow that appeared after about a year

Summary: I bought the TV from Dell and I was quite satisfied with the amount of inputs and the picture quality. I have Directv and the picture looked great until shortly after the first year when I started to notice a black shadow across the screen. A lot of times it blends right in with whatever is on tv but now its beginning to spread and it's more noticeable. Very Disappointing. I paid 200 for my son's 32 inch that he plays video games on and that tv is still going strong.
Summary: I bought this as an open box display, that is why I over looked the popping sound the speakers make. I have read other reviews and apparently it is native to this TV.I think the image is good and normal for normal input. I have seen some reviews say that non-HD input only looks so so, well yeah, its non-HD. It looks better than my 13" tube tv on the same source. HD dose look nice, but this is not the top of the line tv. The problem is more involved with sound.
Summary: I've had this TV for quite a while now and have really been pleased with it. The SD picture quality is good and the HD picture quality is excellent. There is a bit of flashlighting in the corners during really dark scenes, but most of the time it's not noticeable. My only other complaint is that motion blur is pretty significant on this set.
Summary: We bought a sharp 42" LCD 15 months ago. Worked fine for the 1st year. Now, the product will not longer turn on and Sharp does not stand behind anything past the 1st year. They started a new "aquos advantage program" to help users with the larger screen LCDs. Must be a lot of people having problems. BUT at the old age of 15 months, even the "advantage proram" will not cover anything. I would recommend purchasing a more reliable brand.
Summary: It has a great picture and decent sound. The only real drawback is that, while it has numerous input ports, the types are varied and there's not really enough of any one type. So be prepared to immedately buy accessories and some new equipment.
Summary: This is one of the best bargain buys I have ever found. Ever. The picture on the TV is fantastic, high def channels through Fios look sharp & clear. Blacks could be darker, but I'm not picky and I have seen worse pictures on more expensive LCD screens. Sound is pretty good for a factory speaker set on a television in this price category - if you're building a home theater then you'll want to use surround, but otherwise it's perfect for watching TV.
Summary: Picture is great even without HD. Use S-Video from cable box to TV for a REALLY NICE picture if you don't have HD. I am satisfied with the set, but it has 2 issues (not deal breakers, though). First, the sound is poor. I can hear it fine, but it doesn't knock my socks off. I expected to need to add speakers anyway. A lot of these LCDs, regardless of price, have poor sound.
Summary: I got the best deal on this TV! $500 with free shipping for a 42" Sharp 1080p LCD cannot be beaten these days. The quality is excellent. I have it hooked up to my PS3 with surround sound and it is awesome. The internal speakers sound good but are no match for surround sound. I had to get an adapter because this HDTV only has a digital coaxial audio out and my PS3 and most other things are Toslink optical audio.
Summary: Pros: I bought this as an upgrade from an Insignia 32" 720p LCD. The picture quality and contrast ratio are fantastic! The user interface is very easy to navigate and the remote control only has the buttons you need. Not 500 tiny buttons that do things which nobody ever uses! There are plenty of inputs including 3 HDMI ports. I only use 1 since I'm running everything through a receiver. Cons: The speakers aren't very good quality.
